Competition Details

Cardiff Academy of Fencing, Ocean Way,

Cardiff, CF24 5HF

Sat, 8th December Men's: Foil & Sabre - Women's: Foil
Sun, 9th December Men's: Épée - Women's: Épée & Sabre

Returning for the seventh time, the Oxfam Open is the original charitable fencing open. First run in 2008 and then again in 2009, the competition was sadly off the calendar for a number of years. Since the resurrection of the event in 2013 we have raised over £5000 for Oxfam's various appeals.

This year's event will be taking place on the 8th and 9th December. We are delighted to say that this year's event is again taking place at the Cardiff Academy of Fencing. This fencing-specific venue allows us to offer better changing facilities, more metalic pistes and a finals' hall. There is also plenty of parking at the venue.

As is usual, the six events will be split across the two days of the competition. Men's and Womens Foil along with Men's Sabre will be on the Saturday; Men's and Women's Épée & Women's Sabre will be on the Sunday. Sign in for each weapon will close at the following times:
Saturday 8th December: Men's Foil - 10 AM | Men's Sabre - 11:30 AM | Women's Foil - 1 PM
Sunday 9th December: Men's Épée - 10 AM | Women's Épée - 11:30 AM | Women's Sabre - 1 PM

What is Joomla?

Joomla is an award-winning content management system (CMS), which enables you to build Web sites and powerful online applications. Many aspects, including its ease-of-use and extensibility, have made Joomla the most popular Web site software available. Best of all, Joomla is an open source solution that is freely available to everyone.

With millions of websites running on Joomla, the software is used by individuals, small & medium-sized businesses, and large organizations worldwide to easily create & build a variety of websites & web-enabled applications.

What Joomla! can do?

Joomla is used all over the world to power Web sites of all shapes and sizes. For example:

  • Corporate Web sites or portals

Site and Administrator

Your site actually has two separate sites. The site (also called the front end) is what visitors to your site will see. The administrator (also called the back end) is only used by people managing your site. You can access the administrator by clicking the "Site Administrator" link on the "This Site" menu or by adding /administrator to the end of you domain name.

Log in to the administrator using the username and password created during the installation of Joomla.

The Style Settings panel in the Gantry based theme administration interface provides several options for configuring the main built in stylistic aspects of the template.


Gantry also provides the ability for you to create your own custom presets based on any parameter in the theme administrator. You should determine which parameters you wish to configure to be a part of the presets.

Assigning a Style

With Gantry, the ability to assign a certain style to an individual page has never been easier and/or more efficient. Just follow these simple steps:

  • Go to Extensions → Template Manager → rt_alerion → Assignments → *Menu Item*
  • Select your preset from Show Presets, configure and save.

After setting your defaults to the desired values, select the Menu Items button and choose the menu item you wish to modify the parameters for. You will then see a series of checkboxes on the left of all the supported parameters.

Select the checkbox next to the parameter you wish to modify, it will then become active, and you can modify as you wish. Clicking “Save” in the toolbar will then save this configuration.

Gantry Framework: Style Configuration

  1. Enable Logo and set to Custom at Admin → Extensions → Templates Manager → rt_alerion → Features.
